That needs to become the slogan of any Democrat running for congress this year. The evidence is right in the NRCC accounting scandal, which seems to be going unnoticed by the mainstream media.
There is now more evidence pointing to the NRCC’s lax management that may have contributed to this scandal:
The accounting scandal now haunting the National Republican Congressional Committee was preceded by a series of decisions over the past decade to relax internal financial controls at the committee, according to numerous Republican sources familiar with the NRCC’s operations during those years.
Under Virginia Rep. Tom Davis and New York Rep. Thomas Reynolds, who chaired the committee from 1999 until the end of 2006, the NRCC waived rules requiring the executive committee – made up of elected leaders and rank-and-file Republican lawmakers – to sign off on expenditures exceeding $10,000, merged the various department budgets into a single account and rolled back a prohibition on committee staff earning an income from outside companies.
Remember that this is the core of the party of “fiscal responsibility”. The NRCC is the life blood for House Republicans. If they are so careless with this important money, how can they be trusted to control the money of the United States? This is a serious problem for the NRCC and can become a great campaign issue for Democrats this year.
